31st Annual Conference Spanning the Continuum of Care: Innovations in Geriatric Health Practice


Program Overview

Course Description: 

This conference provides geriatric health professionals throughout the continuum of care with clinical and practical topics relevant to health practice with older adults. These topics were selected because they represent areas of need as identified by participants and faculty who provide health care to older adults. Some topics represent increasing clinical concerns in the geriatric population. Other topics represent areas that have important policy and cost implications for health care providers and ultimately affect the way services are provided to older patients.

This conference is designed to provide updates to health care providers from all disciplines including physicians, physician assistants, medical directors, social workers, nurses, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, physical therapists, nursing home administrators, dental professionals, audiologists, chiropractors, podiatrists, recreational therapists, health care students, faculty and any other professionals interested in the field of aging.
